I am really enjoying the stories that come with the blocks. And I can't believe how different the blocks look when set on point and with different fabrics. These blocks finish at 6".
Cut Glass Dish Block
Flower Basket Block
Butterfly at the Crossroads Block
Country Farm Block
Birds in the Air Block
Broken Dishes Block
Puss in the Corner Block
Honey's Choice Block
I have added the cornerstone and sashing on two sides of the blocks in hopes it will be less monotonous when setting it together. I hope my plan works. I'm so anxious to get these together.
I finished one more project at retreat but I still don't have a photo of it and another one that is already on the quilting machine. The quilt top is BIG and it's been cold and WINDY here so it makes it difficult to photograph. By the way, it's so windy it blows the old fashion iron chairs I have setting on my front porch off almost daily! URGH!!!! Will the wind ever quit blowing or the temperatures warm up? I'm beginning to think NOT!
This was the view out my patio doors this morning. I told you I live in the middle of a corn field. Despite the cold temperatures in the 30's and spitting snow, the farmer's are beginning to work the ground in preparation for corn planting. So far no planting yet though. This guy's tractor is pretty small in comparison to the the field he's working and in comparison to the other tractors in other fields nearby.
